Fodor's Expert Review Barberian's Steak House

$$$$ Yonge-Dundas Square Area Steakhouse

A Toronto landmark where wheeling, dealing, and lots of eating have gone on since 1959, Barberian's also has a romantic history: Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton got engaged here (for the first time). It's one of the oldest steak houses in the city, and the menu is full of classic dishes, such as Caesar salad and jumbo shrimp cocktail. Mains are all about the meat, but the fish of the day and grilled free-range capon are also solid.
